Has anyone read the book referred to in the subject?

The URL for the publisher's page is...

...and it says the book describes a unification of parsing techniques
for programming languages and natural languages.

                                                    "The new implementations, called recursive
      ascent parsers, avoid explicit manipulation of parse stacks and
      parse matrices, and are in many ways superior to conventional
      implementations. They are applicable to grammars for programming
      languages as well as natural languages."

I'm hoping to hear more about the book in particular and recursive
ascent parsing in general.
